Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

The 1830 U.S. Census identifies the household as containing James and one female between 20 and 30 (probably Nancy), one boy under 5 (probably William) and one girl under 5 (probably Martha).

Is this the James Spear who purchased land in Ohio, recorded in the Zanesville land office -- 80 acres on 1 Feb 1831, 40 acres on 1 Apr 1837?
